About this listing

Bright sunny studio apartment for 2 people with a king sized double bed. It has its own kitchen, bathroom and direct access to the terrace. Free wifi. and free parking directly across the street.

The space

Hemingway House Holiday Apartments is a 19th century townhouse right in the centre of Kobarid which has been converted into 5 unique self-catering apartments for the budget yet style conscious traveller.

There is a very large free car parking place directly across the street from the house and another 4 free parking areas within a minutes walk of the house. I have left my own car there for years without any problems.

The Apartments have all been named after Ernest Hemingway's wives and this double studio apartment (32sqm) has been named after his third wife Martha.

This apartment has a queen sized (160 x 200) bed and exposed stone walls and ceiling beams creating a romantic atmosphere.

The kitchen has a 4 ring electric hob, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, Bodum French press and Bialetti coffee makers, cooking equipment and crockery for two people. The Dining room table seats two and there is an antique wood burning stove.

The en-suite bathroom is has ample counter space for your toiletries and has a large storage closet for your luggage etc as well as a heated towel rail.

The room is located at the rear of the first (middle) floor of the house and is accessed directly via the Upstairs terrace. It has its own private and lockable entrance.

Between the hours of 9:00 pm to 10:30 am you will have exclusive access to the terrace area - as I tell the other guests that they can not use the terrace at this time.

Guest access

Hemingway House has two terraces from which to admire the stunning mountain views visible from them.

There is a large garden which has a BBQ and 2 picnic tables, as well as 3 sun loungers for you to relax on. And I've planted a herb garden and so guests can cook with fresh herbs.

To the rear of the property is a large secure barn where you can store larger sports equipment, kayaks, paragliders, bicycles etc. On the top floor, I would be more than happy to dry out wet clothes (and even tents) on your behalf.

Interaction with guests

I live at the house and I've been told on more than one occassion that I'm a fount of knowledge about the local area and what can be done here.

I have thoroughly explored my new homeland and the surrounding countries, particularly Italy, and I'm very happy to share my ideas of where to go etc with my guests.

Other things to note

The prices do not include the local tourist tax which costs €1.27 per adult and €0.63 per child (3 to 18).

If you are planning to come for 7 nights or longer it is always worth it to write to me...I like to make special offers for my longer term guests.

Kobarid, SloveniaJoined in August 2013
Marie User Profile

I am a Canadian who came to Slovenia on a holiday back in 2007 and feel in love with the beauty of the Soca Valley.

When I returned to London where I was living at the time, I decided that there had to be more to life than working 9 to 5 marketing a law firm. And spurred on by numerous property development programs I decided that I would be the one person alive who could move to a foreign country where I didn't speak the language and renovate a dilapidated house into a bed and breakfast without too much hassle, bearing in mind I had no DIY experience whatsoever.

Need we say things didn't go as planned but after two years I was able to transform a total ruin into a very liveable three bedroom house, in the lovely village of Ciginj, which is available for renting on this site.

Shortly after I finished renovating this house, a property in Kobarid became available and I decided to sell my house in Ciginj to a guest who stayed in the house and loved it and turn my hand at another renovation project.

Two years later, my vision was realised and Hemingway House is now open for business.

Along the way, I've made numerous great friends over here, improved my knowledge on how to renovate stone houses as well as the art of plastering, tiling, painting and whole host of other DIY skills.

I have just finished renovating a total ruin up in the picturesque village of Livek, which overlooks the Soca Valley, just above Kobarid into a magnificent farmhouse with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a massive open planned kitchen /living area, with a 45sqm terrace with a fantastic view of Krn which is also available for rent on this site.

I am living proof that you can realise your dream if you have the stupidity, courage and determination to see it through.

And, now I plan to have rest and go travelling once more come the autumn...through Turkey, Azerbijan, Armenia and Georgia.
